Publisher's Summary

The second eldest in an ancient line of Russian dragon shifters, Mikhail Barinov had one job: protect one of the family hoard of jewels. Distracted by the English virgin queen Elizabeth, who was as dazzling as she was devious, he lost everything. Five centuries of exile later, news that a construction crew has unearthed a massive trove of gold and jewels sends him racing to London, determined to steal back his family's treasure...and his honor.

Professional gemologist Piper Linwood can't wait to bury herself in her newest project, evaluating a hoard of Elizabethan-era treasure. But both her life and career are threatened when a mysterious, brooding man with a dangerous smile - and an even more dangerous kiss - snatches the lot. Unwillingly swept along for the ride, Piper discovers Mikhail is no mere thief. And the dragon on his back is more than a tattoo. It's a living, breathing extension of a bad boy she's finding harder and harder to resist. But his heart is a treasure she can never own...because to save her career, she'll have to betray his trust.

Contains mature themes.

Just Wonderful

So sad and so awesome, these dragons and their stories. When the author and the narrator are finished, with them and you, the whole thing is just wonderful !! Enjoyed this brother’s tale, too much actually. Once I start these books, I seem to get nothing else done until I finish!!

Great book 2!

This second audiobook in this series was very entertaining. The story of a dragon shifter who was once in love with and betrayed by Queen Elizabeth in the 16th century. He has just gone through the motions until he sees on TV the dragons hoard of jewels he lost over 500 yrs ago. When he goes to see them, he meets a Gemologist who is in charge of cataloging the stones and realizes she’s his true mate. The narration was excellent.
